Geog1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Goes on long rants. 2 papers and 3 tests. The final is not accumulative. Gives you a study guide with the exact test questions. Almost never went to class and got an A. No book given a CD with all material. For tests you just need to memorize answers.

Easy Prof. Passionate about the enviroment. Lets you know exactly whats on tests. Lets you make up grades on assignments. Gives papers and test quickly. Aprochable. Does rant however it is about the enviroment which is relevant to class and at times does tie in, all his lectures/rants make you think about the world we live in. =)Great!

Remote Sensing Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Terrible professor. I learned nothing from the class. Prof spent his time ranting about personal problems or whatever. Every now and then he got on topic for 3-4 minutes but then was off again. It was uncomfortable to attend, and so not many people did. Then he ranted about low attendance. I did nothing and got an A. Learned squat. Not worth my $$$

GEO1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took his class during the summer, 2 TAKE HOME hw and midterm/final, skipped class and received an A+. No book necessary gives you a cd w/everything on it. Chill teacher, he has interesting views on the world and society if you ask him otherwise you'll have a decent/boring class if you don't want to talk. He shows alot of cool videos also.

His class is pretty boring but very easy! I aced all of my tests so I didn't have to take a final and I only did one of the homework assignments and I got an A. He gives all of the material ahead of time on a cd which was VERY helpful. He is a very nice guy and he is pretty funny.

class is extremely BORING lecture, all you do is go over powerpoints every single day, you are given the study guides and powerpoints so its an easy A , just boring, unless you enjoy geography and climate. If you do the study guide every time and read over the powerpoint before the test then you will ace the class no problem

Nice guy, and the class is really laid back. Gives you the test questions at the beginning of the semester. Still takes a lot of studying because they are all essay questions. I missed about six lectures and ended up with an A- because I scored well on tests. Put in a good amount of effort and be respectful during his lectures and you will pass.

He is a really nice professor, really laid back. You don't have to show up for his classes but lectures can be interesting. Just go on review days, he gives you all the answers. He seems mean but is really funny and friendly. I loved this class.

Geog160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He's a laid back professor in this class. The course consist of take home exams which are a combination of short answer and essay questions. They are not hard. His lectures can be unorthodox though and at times it feels more like a seminar than a lecture. He values attendance as well so be sure to show up. BTW, there's no textbooks for the class.

Even though his lectures are hard, he is a great professor. He cares about students and the subject he is teaching. Despite the huge crowd in our class, he still knows who's there and who isn't. Show up, work hard, and you will be fine.

Labs were ok and the lectures were a hit and miss- it can be interesting or boring at times. The 2 exams and a final are take home. Plus you'll have 3 hw assignments which are easy.

Show up, and he will remember you did. Easy A if you do the study guides for tests. Boring subject but he attempts to relate it to your life so its more interesting. Nice guy, for the most part. Take the class!

A very easy teacher. Is not quite interesting, the tests are easy because he provides you with a study guide of what is going to be on the test.
